YOU - You are not who you were.

The human body replaces 200 to 300 billion cells every day--a rate of about 200 million cells per minute!
(Incidentally, an adult is comprised of approximately 60 trillion cells.)
Indeed, without having done a thing,
"you are not the same person you were yesterday!":-)

Greetings from Sensorium's AnnounceMail:

KNOW "Dialogue in the Dark"?
    An experimental project that deeply sympathizes with Sensorium's theme of recomposing the "ways we sense the world" was launched recently in Japan.
    The experiment--called "Reimei" (Dawn), originally performed in Europe under the name "Dialogue in the Dark"--takes place in a pitch black room, where one hears various sounds, touches plants, drinks alcohol...has a non-visual experience.
    Moreover, those who guide us through the room are visually handicapped.
    Experiencing the world of the blind through this para-experience makes one realize the extent to which our sensory circuits are shut down in normal daily living.
    A remarkable piece of senseware!
